The Name of Washington. 



Sons of the youth and the truth of the nation, — 

Ye that are met to remember the man 
Whose valor gave birth to a people's salvation, — 
Honor him now ; set his name in the van. 
A nobleness to try for, 
A name to live and die for — 
The name of Washington ! 

Calmly his face shall look down through the ages — 

Sweet yet severe with a spirit of warning ; 
Charged with the wisdom of saints and of sages ; 
Quick with the light of a life-giving morning. 
A majesty to try for, 
A name to live and die for — 
The name of Washington ! 

Though faction may rack us, or party divide*us, 

And bitterness break the gold links of our story, 
Our father and leader is ever beside us. 

Live and forgive ! But forget not the glory 
Of him whose height we try for ; 
A name to live and die for — 
The name of Washington ! 

Still in his eyes shall be mirrored our fleeting 
Days, with the image of days long ended ; 
Still shall those eyes give, immortally, greeting 
Unto the souls from his spirit descended. 
His grandeur we will try for ; 
His name we'll live and die for — 
The name of Washington ! 

Geo. Parsons Lathrop.

THE 



Constitution of the General Society 



It being evident, from a steady decline of a proper celebration of the 
National holidays of the United States of America, that popular concern 
in the events and men of the war of the Revolution is gradually declining, 
and that such lack of interest is attributable, not so much to the lapse of 
time and the rapidly increasing flood of immigration from foreign coun- 
tries, as to the neglect on the part of descendants of Revolutionary heroes 
to perform their duty in keeping before the public mind the memory of the 
services of their ancestors and of the times in which they lived ; therefore, 
the Society of the Sons of the Revolution has been instituted to perpetuate 
the memory of the men, who, in the military, naval and civil service of the 
Colonies and of the Continental Congress, by their acts or counsel, achieved 
the Independence of the country, and to further the proper celebration of 
the anniversaries of the birthday of Washington, and of prominent events 
connected with the war of the Revolution ; to collect and secure for pres- 
ervation the rolls, records and other documents relating to that period ; to 
inspire the members of the Society with the patriotic spirit of their fore- 
fathers ; and to promote the feeling of friendship among them. 

The General Society shall be divided into State Societies, which shall 
meet annually on the day appointed therefor in their respective by-laws, 
and oftener if found expedient ; and at such annual meeting the reasons 

(35) 

1151573 



36 

for the institution of the Society shall be considered, and the best measures 
for carrying them into effect adopted. 

The State Societies at every annual meeting shall choose a President, a 
Vice-President, a Secretary, a Registrar, a Treasurer, a Chaplain, and such 
other officers as may by them respectively be deemed necessary, and a 
board of managers, to consist of such officers, and other members, as may 
be provided by their respective Constitutions and By-laws, all of whom 
shall retain their respective positions until their successors are duly 
chosen. 

Each State Society shall cause to be transmitted annually or oftener to 
the other State Societies, a circular letter calling attention to whatever 
may be thought worthy of observation respecting the welfare of the Society 
or of the general union of the States, and giving information of the officers 
chosen for the year ; and copies of these letters shall also be transmitted to 
the General Secretary to be preserved among the records of the General 
Society. 

The State Societies shall regulate all matters respecting their own 
affairs, consistent with the general good of the Society ; judge of the quali- 
fication of their members or of those proposed for membership, subject, 
however, to the provisions of this Constitution ; and expel any member, 
who, by conduct unbecoming a gentleman or a man of honor, or by an 
opposition to the interests of the community in general or of the Society in 
particular, may render himself unworthy to continue in membership. 

In order to form funds that may be respectable, each member shall con- 
tribute upon his admission to the Society and annually thereafter, such 
sums as the by-laws of the respective State Societies may require ; but any 
of such State Societies may provide for the endowment of memberships 
by the payment of proper sums in capitalization, which sums shall be 
properly invested as a permanent fund, the income only of which shall be 
expended. 

The regular meeting of the General Society shall be held every three 
years, and special meetings may be held upon the order of the General 
President or upon the request of two of the State Societies, and such meet- 
ings shall consist of the General Officers and a representation not exceeding 
Rve deputies from each State Society, and the necessary expenses of such 
meeting shall be borne by the State Societies. 



37 

At the regular meeting, a General President, Vice-President, Secretary, 

Assistant Secretary, Treasurer, Assistant Treasurer, and Chaplain shall be 

chosen by a majority of the votes present, to serve until the next regular 

general meeting, or until their successors are duly chosen. 

[The following amendment to the Constitution was proposed at the meeting of the General 
Society held in New York on April 19, 1893, and will be voted on at the next regular meeting: 
"At the regular meeting a General President, General Vice-President, General Second Vice- 
President, Secretary, Assistant Secretary, Treasurer, Assistant Treasurer, Registrar, Historian 
and Chaplain shall be chosen by a majority of the votes present, to serve until the next regular 
general meeting, or until their successors are duly chosen."] 

At each general meeting the circular letters which have been trans- 
mitted by the several State Societies shall be considered, and all measures 
taken which shall conduce to the general welfare of the Society. 

The General Society shall have power at any meeting to admit State 
Societies thereto, and to entertain and determine all questions affecting the 
qualifications for membership in or the welfare of any State Society as may 
by proper memorial be presented by such State Society for consideration. 

Any male person above the age of twenty-one years, of good character, 
and a descendant of one who, as a military, naval or marine officer, soldier, 
sailor or marine, in actual service, under the authority of any of the thirteen 
Colonies or States or of the Continental Congress, and remaining always 
loyal to such authority, or a descendant of one who signed the Declaration 
of Independence, or of one who, as a member of the Continental Congress 
or of the Congress of any of the Colonies or States, or as an official appointed 
by or under the authority of any such legislative bodies, actually assisted 
in the establishment of American Independence by services rendered dur- 
ing the war of the Revolution, becoming thereby liable to conviction of 
treason against the government of Great Britain, but remaining always 
loyal to the authority of the Colonies or States, shall be eligible to member- 
ship in the Society. 

The Secretary of each State Society shall transmit to the General Secre- 
tary a list of the members thereof, together with the names and official 
designations of those from whom such members derive claim to member- 
ship, and thereafter upon the admission of members in each State Society, 
the Secretary thereof shall transmit to the General Secretary information 
respecting such members similar to that herein required. 

The Society shall have an insignia, which shall be a badge suspended 



38 

from a ribbon by a ring of gold ; the badge to be elliptical in form, with 
escaloped edges, one and one-quarter inches in length, and one and one- 
eighth inches in width ; the whole surmounted by a gold eagle, with wings 
displayed, inverted ; on the obverse side a medallion of gold in the centre, 
elliptical in form, bearing on its face the figure of a soldier in Continental 
uniform, with musket slung ; beneath, the figures 1775 ; the medallion sur- 
rounded by thirteen raised gold stars of five points each upon a border of 
dark blue enamel. On the reverse side in the centre a medallion corre- 
sponding in form to that on the obverse, and also in gold, bearing on its 
face the Houdon portrait of Washington in bas-relief, encircled by the 
legend, " Sons of the [Revolution ;" beneath, the figures 1883 ; and upon the 
reverse of the eagle the number of the badge to be engraved ; the medal- 
lion to be surrounded by a plain gold border, conforming in dimensions to 
the obverse ; the ribbon shall be dark blue, ribbed and watered, edged with 
buff, one and one-half inches wide, and one and one-half inches in dis- 
played length. 

The insignia of the Society shall be worn by the members on all occa- 
sions when they assemble as such for any stated purpose or celebration, 
and may be worn on any occasion of ceremony ; it shall be carried con- 
spicuously on the left breast, but members who are or have been officers of 
the Society may wear the insignia suspended from the ribbon around the 
neck. 

The custodian of the insignia shall be the General Secretary, who shall 
issue them to members of the Society under such proper rules as may be 
formulated by the General Society, and he shall keep a register of such 
issues wherein each insignia issued may be identified by the number 
thereof. 

The seal of the Society shall be one and seven-eighths inches in diam- 
eter, and shall consist of the figure of a Minute-man in Continental uniform, 
standing on a ladder leading to a belfry ; in his left hand he holds a musket 
and an olive branch, whilst his right grasps a bell-rope ; above, the cracked 
Liberty Bell ; issuing therefrom a ribbon bearing the motto of the Society, 
Exegi monumentum cere perennius ; across the top of the ladder on a rib- 
bon, the figures 1776 ; and on the left of the Minute-man, and also on a 
ribbon, the figures 1883, the year of the formation of the Society ; the whole 
encircled by a band three-eighths of one inch wide ; thereon at the top 



39 

thirteen stars of five points each ; at the bottom the name of the General 

Society, or of the State Society to which the seal belongs. 

[The following amendment to the Constitution was proposed at the meeting of the General 
Society held in New York on April 19, 1893, and will be voted on at the next regular meeting: 
"This Constitution may be amended at any meeting of the Society by a vote of three-fourths 
of the members present, provided notice of such proposed amendment shall be given at a 
previous meeting, or communicated to each State Society thirty days before action is had 
thereon." Proposed by Mr. Woodruff, of New York; seconded by Mr. Hall, of Maryland.]

Constitution. 

preamble. 

Whereas, it has become evident from the decline of proper celebration 
of such National holidays as the Fourth of July, "Washington's Birthday, 
and the like, that popular interest in the events and men of the War of the 
Revolution is less than in the earlier days of the Republic ; 

And Whereas, this lack of interest is to be attributed not so much to 
lapse of time as to the neglect on the part of descendants of Revolutionary 
heroes to perform their duty of keeping before the public mind the memory 
of the services of their ancestors, and of the times in which they lived, and 
of the principles for which they contended ; 

Therefore, the Society of the "Sons of the Revolution" has been 
instituted, to perpetuate the memory of the men who, in military, naval or 
civil service, by their acts or counsel, achieved American Independence ; 
to promote and assist in the proper celebration of the anniversaries of 
Washington's Birthday, the Battles of Lexington and Bunker Hill, the 
Fourth of July, the Capitulations of Saratoga and Yorktown, the formal 
Evacuation of New York by the British Army, on the 3d of December, 
1783, as a relinquishment of territorial sovereignty, and other prominent 

(40) 



41 

events relating to or connected with the War of the Revolution ; to collect 
and secure for preservation the manuscript rolls, records and other docu- 
ments and memorials relating to that War ; to inspire among the members 
and their descendants the patriotic spirit of their forefathers ; to inculcate 
in the community in general sentiments of Nationality and respect for the 
principles for which the patriots of the Revolution contended ; to assist in 
the commemorative celebration of other great historical events of National 
importance, and to promote social intercourse and the feeling of fellowship 

among its members. 

ARTICLE I. 

Wame of Society. 
The Society shall be known by the name, style and title of " Sons of 
the Revolution." 

ARTICLE II. 

dftembersbtp. 

Any male person, above the age of twenty ^one years, shall be eligible 
to membership in the "Sons of the Revolution" who is descended from 
an ancestor, as the propositus, who, either as a military, naval or marine 
officer, soldier, sailor, or marine, or official in the service of any one of the 
thirteen original Colonies or States, or of the National Government repre- 
senting or composed of those Colonies or States, assisted in establishing 
American Independence during the War of the Revolution, between the 
19th day of April, 1775, when hostilities commenced, and the 19th day of 
April, 1783, when they were ordered to cease. 

Provided : That when the claim of eligibility is based on the service of 
an ancestor in the "minute men" or "militia," it must be satisfactorily 
shown that such ancestor was actually called into the service of the State 
or United States, and performed garrison or field duty ; and 

Provided further : That when the claim of eligibility is based on the 
service of an ancestor as a " sailor" or "marine," it must in like manner be 
shown that such service was other than shore duty and regularly per- 
formed in the Continental Navy, or the Navy of one of the original thirteen 
States, or on an armed vessel, other than a merchant ship, which sailed 
under letters of marque and reprisal, and that such ancestor of the appli- 
cant was duly enrolled in the ship's company, either as an officer, seaman, 
or otherwise than as a passenger ; and 



42 

Provided further: That when the claim of eligibility is based on the 
service of an ancestor as an " official," such service must have been per- 
formed in the civil service of the United States, or of one of the thirteen 
original States, and must have been sufficiently important in character to 
have rendered the official specially liable to arrest and imprisonment, the 
same as a combatant, if captured by the enemy, as well as liable to convic- 
tion of treason against the Government of Great Britain. 

Service in the ordinary duties of a civil office, the performance of which 
did not particularly and effectively aid the American Cause, shall not con- 
stitute eligibility. 

.Provided further : That when there shall be no surviving issue in dfrect 
lineal succession from an officer, soldier, sailor or marine who died yor was 
killeoNwhile in actual service as aforesaid, or from an officer who deceived, 
by formal resolve, the approbation of the Continental Congres^ror revolu- 
tionary services, or from a Signer of the Declaration of Impendence, the 
claim of eligibility shall descend and be limited to one j^presentative at a 
time in the nearest collateral line of descent fro^f^such propositus, who 
may be otherwise qnalified as herein requim£f*and to be designated by the 
Society; and no other descendants in jj^ilateral lines shall be admitted in 
right of any services whatever. 

In the construction oftJji«^Hicle, the Volunteer Aids de Camp of Gen- 
eral Officers in Continental Service7' ! N^owere duly announced as such and 
who actuall^*€rved in the field during a ca^Tftjaajgp, shall be comprehended 
asja*pfmg performed qualifying service. 

The civil officials and military forces of the State of Vermont, during 
the War of the Revolution, shall also be comprehended in the same manner 
as if they had belonged to one of the thirteen original States. 

No service of an ancestor shall be deemed as qualifying service for 
membership in the "Sons of the Revolution" where such ancestor, after 
assisting in the cause of American Independence, shall have subsequently 
either adhered to the enemy, or failed to maintain an honorable record 
throughout the War of the Revolution. 

No person shall be admitted unless he be eligible under one of the pro-

judged worthy of becoming a member.

a right of appeal to the next annual meeting of the Society ; but he shall

''A hurry of hoofs in a village street, 
A shape in the moonlight, a bulk in the dark,

Struck out by a steed flying fearless and fleet,— 
That was all; and yet, through the gloom and the light, 
The fate of a nation was riding that night.'"

To the New York Society 

of the Sons of the Revolution : 

Your Committee, appointed in accordance with Section 
XVIII of the By-Laws, to nominate officers and members of the 
Board of Managers for election at the next annual meeting, ask 
leave to report : 

That a meeting was held at No. 56 Wall Street on November 
6, 1893, for the purposes aforesaid, at which your esteemed 
Secretary, Mr. Montgomery, earnestly desired that, in considera- 
tion of his long service, during the period when the labors of 
the Secretary have been especially onerous, he might be per- 
mitted to have a rest from the duties of said office, which is 
absolutely necessary for him. It was with great regret that your 
Committee felt obliged to accede to his request. 

Mr. Montgomery, who has felt great anxiety in the matter 
of his successor, strongly recommended the nomination of 
Thomas Edward Vermilye Smith, as well qualified by education, 
business capacity, executive ability, and untiring industry for the 
position. We decided, therefore, to nominate that gentleman 
for Secretary for the coming year. 

Your honored President, Mr. Tallmadge also appeared be- 
fore us, and with great urgency renewed the request (made by 
him last year), that he might be permitted to retire from the 
position he has so long held. When we considered the work 
he has done in his laborious office ; the valuable time he has 
given to it ; and the immense correspondence it has involved 
during the critical years in which he has stood at the helm and 
11 kept the rudder true," it was difficult to resist his appeal for 
rest. But we felt that the time had not arrived when he could 
be spared from his post ; and, moreover, that it would not be 
wise to change the two most important officers at the same

Finally, your Committee recommends the passage of the fol- 
lowing resolution at the annual meeting : 

Resolved, That the cordial thanks of this Society are hereby 
tendered to Mr. James Mortimer Montgomery, not only for his 
able and efficient services as Secretary, but also for essentially 
aiding in many other ways the progress of the Society towards 
its present high position ; and that we sincerely regret that he felt

many years so satisfactorily administered. 

All which is respectfully submitted. 

November, 1893.

JOHN J. SILLCOCKS, Se'c'y.
